Bullet Bouquets – Ballistic Romance

Now here is something that I wish I had for my wedding. Its actually classy enough that I may have been able to get it past the Mrs. The Three Bloom Boutonniere is a combination pistol hollow-point and .223 brass that is for the classy (or arguably, class-less) formal shooter. Available with either a brass or nickel case, the boutonniere starts at $29.95.


Description from Bullet Bouquets:

Bullet Bouquets Boutonnières are here!  This boutonnière has small and medium-sized blooms (about 1/2″ to 5/8″ in diameter) in a .223 Remington (5.56 NATO) brass or nickel case for a vase.  Two attachment points (see additional photos for details) make for a secure connection to your jacket so you can get crazy on the dance floor all night!

For those interested in such ballistic artwork, check out the parent company, Bullet Bouquets, which offers numerous gifts for the discerning shooter and gift-giver. The top of the line is the dozen blooms, which can be customized with either .40/9mm or go big with .45 ACP. (Note- this is the topic photo).

    man how do i get a job there lol “and now we need you to fire these rounds into ballistics gel all day long”

      You get perfect ‘blooms’ like that from water, not gel.
      Still I’d kind of like to see their setup for doing all this. 😉

    Brass corrodes and exposed lead oxidizes. I hope all of these are painted with a protective clearcoat, or they’re not going to look so nice 3 years from now.

      I deal with lead exposure at my work. Tools that touch lead can never touch “clean” tools, hand washing procedures, ventilation, etc. It’s annoying, but I’ve seen how easy it is to contaminate items just by touch.

      I WOULD NOT ever purchase lead novelty items for area the house. Surely they could do these with all copper or lead free bullets. I’d also never hand cast or handle cast rounds, but whatever.

      They are clear coated.

    This isn’t an original idea. Some guy on youtube made one of these for a gun friendly female a few years ago.
